Naviculam Chorus No.5, in studio
This ongoing series of drawings speak to me and from me about the rhythms of the sea, of growth on land, of living creatures; of humanity in connection to our fragile yet resilient natural environment. Linked aesthetically by the shapes of boat parts coupled with organic patterns and circles representing portals, they are my love songs to nature and meditations on my relationship with her.
